The Verzuz battle continues, only, this time, rappers aren’t spitting bars into the mic as they face off before the cameras.
Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, the two blokes behind the Verzuz platform, are suing streamer Triller for breach of contract and missed payments after they purchased the Verzuz platform in January last year.
Triller had reportedly made payments in January and April 2021 but failed to make another required payment scheduled for January 2022. The payment agreement was changed, and Triller made another payment in February. They have consistently missed payments since then.
The new payment agreement the duo had with Triller made room for them to accelerate the remaining payment if Triller should miss a payment – which has already happened.
Now the two musicians are suing Triller and demanding $28 million in payment, which is the balance of what the American video-sharing social networking service owes them.
Verzuz has been described as an iconic platform by some of its core fans because it has been able to bring some of America’s finest musicians to the studio, where they challenged each other, lyrics for lyrics.
With Timbaland and Swizz Beatz all out to get their money, it will be interesting to see how Triller will respond. Stay tuned, y’all.
